OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 23, 2013
A - Pours cola brown with 1 finger of tan head. S - Milk chocolate, sugary malt, vanilla, roasted malts. Smokey aroma as it warms. T - Dark caramel, roasted malts, caramelized sugar, bitter dark chocolate, brown toast, nutty yeast, hints of grapes and under-ripened berries. Bittering hops adds earthiness to round off the finish. Citrus comes out on the aftertaste. M - Moderate carbonation, light side of medium, almost thin body. No alcohol to speak of. The carbonation drops off toward the end. Warming without the alcohol showing up. Nice cocoa and roasted malts with a solid strain of nutty yeast to glue everything together. The mouthfeel was the weak link but it wasnít a deal breaker. Everything tasted young and fresh. Iím gonna try and out one away for a year or so. Serving type: bottle 11-19-2011

Pours dark brown with a small tan head with allows for a very savory aroma. Best drunk from a glass with a large mouth for better enjoyment of this aleís sweet, malty fragrance. It tastes great and will be my go to winter seasonal in the future.

Good dark ale on a cold day. Not an everyday drink. Tasted better once the ale set and warmed up a little. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a small frothy beige head leaving sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is a bready malt with caramel and roast. Thin mouthfeel with a rich malt and chocolate with a bready finish. Easy to drink hiding the alcohol well. A good English strong ale from Rahr.

Decent for Rahr, but not worth trading for. Smooth sweetish taste, that comes close to a strong dark. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SPDickerman (986) - Texas, USA - MAR 22, 2012
Pours dark brown with hints of red at the edges of the glass and a small yellowish tan head. Smells of rich malt, hints of caramel and chocolate, and a touch of woody hops. Taste is sweet with a nice balance of chocolate and caramel, no real bitterness present. Full-bodied with a smooth texture and very soft mouth-carbonation, Rahr and Sons Mild Winter Winter Warmer finishes with a lingering soft bitterness.
